Super Tuesday came and it went and we really aren’t any better off because of it. Going into the big day, the delegate count was as follows: 207 for Romney, 86 for Santorum, 46 for Paul and 39 for Gingrich. After Super Tuesday, the delegate count swelled to 429 for Romney, 169 for Santorum, 118 for Gingrich and a dismal 67 for Ron Paul. Out of the ten states, Romney walked away with six wins, Santorum with three and Gingrich with a win in his home state of Georgia. Ron Paul didn’t win a single state and is the only candidate left in this race that hasn’t gotten a first place victory, at least officially – considering he was screwed out of Maine. At this stage of the race, Dr. Paul is 0 for 23 in winning over states. I don’t think I am being pessimistic or disloyal here when I point out the fact that Paul’s efforts to win this primary have been seemingly all for naught. Then again, his message has reached more people than it ever has before – in that, there is a very solid victory.
Mathematically, Ron Paul is still technically in this thing but he’d have to string together about two dozen miracles over the next month or so to eclipse Mitt Romney in the delegate department. Hell even that piss midget Rick Santorum is way ahead of Dr. Paul now. Gingrich who fell to fourth place behind Paul last week, is now back up in third and after his Georgia win, is now ahead of Paul pretty significantly. Now the Paul campaign keeps telling us that the delegates that the media is reporting on don’t matter and that it really comes down to the amount of “secured” delegates. While they continue to claim that they are incredibly successful in the secured delegates department, I don’t know if their numbers are skewed or if it’s just a pile of giant bullshit. I don’t want to call out the Paul camp for misleading their supporters but all these mystical revelations and inspiring speeches can’t discount reality and reality is that the Paul campaign is suffering horribly.
I’m not going to sit here and type away telling the Paul camp to walk away. Hell, I want to see this thing through to the end, no matter what the outcome is. However, ignoring the fact that this is certainly not working out in Dr. Paul’s favor really needs to be addressed. It needs to be touched on because the strategy, as good as it is at throwing rallies and raising money, somehow cannot turn that passionate support into votes. Where it really counts, this amazingly run campaign is falling flat. I don’t know if there is a way to turn this thing around. The most logical way of doing so would be to continue to educate the fickle and fair-weather Romneycons, Gingrichers and Santorumites. However, these people seem to greatly outnumber the Paul supporters and their brains are nothing more than a thick pile of coosh suffering from decades of indoctrinated neocon rhetoric from soulless bastards pontificating from boutique soap boxes wrapped in soft Corinthian leather stitched with golden thread paid for by Goldman Sachs campaign contributions.
The truth is, that it is the young generation that is getting Dr. Paul’s message and it will ultimately be up to them to turn things around. The true positive of all this is that the old guard is decaying, albeit slowly. It may take years for them to all keel over and die but their message and their rhetoric doesn’t seem to be penetrating the minds of most of the conservative and libertarian people under the age of thirty. The unrelenting truth however, is that even though this message is spreading like wildfire, by the time that this young generation grows, has children and goes on to educate them and teach them these principles, it might be too late. However, a little anarchy and total collapse may be what’s necessary at this point. Maybe the country needs to fall like Rome so we can wash our hands with it and build up something more solid and sustainable. Maybe that’s what needs to happen for these neocons and progressives to finally accept the fact that they’re sick and that their disease has killed a once great nation. Then again, we all know that they’ll just continue to point the finger, divide the masses and pimp out their consistently disastrous formula that they refuse to see as economically genocidal. We have a choice however, we don’t have to listen to them.
I know, this article really isn’t about Super Tuesday, it is about trying to find a shred of hope and promise after living through another dark day in American history. We have to accept the fact that Ron Paul is not going to win this election and he also isn’t going to return to his seat in Congress. We only have a few months left with this man in office fighting for us. So what’s going to happen when he takes a step back and hands the reigns of liberty over? Will Rand Paul or Justin Amash take them and lead us towards the promised land that those of us that understand the mechanics of this twisted game are trying to find? Or does this movement and this mindset die with this election? I am trying to stay motivated and positive and continue the fight for all that’s right from a journalistic standpoint but it is incredibly hard. I know you all feel my pain and my dissatisfaction but we need to turn these negative emotions into fuel. Yes we are all tired, we are all at our wits end and every time Ol’ Mittens or that bag of dicks Mr. Santorum give us another victory speech we want to smash our television sets with our passionate and loud voices. This is why we can’t give up, this is why we have to push forward through thick and thin, this is why our voices MUST BE LOUDER!
We don’t need to look for someone to lead us. We are the leaders! We are the revolution and the resurgence that this country needs. No, I don’t have all the answers and I can’t tell you what must be done next but if we are vigilant, never let up and march forward, the ideas and the action will come. Mankind is smart enough to fix their own problems and to take responsibility for itself, contrary to governmental rhetoric, as they would rather see us dependent on them – remaining zombified and subservient to no end. That’s all bullshit. We are human beings, which is the greatest force this universe has ever created! We have what it takes to lead ourselves again and to defeat this two-headed mastodon. We’ve done it before and we WILL do it again! There really isn’t any other option, is there? We have to want it, we can’t settle for less, we have to see the evil bastards for what they are and not take their lies and deceit at face value. Where is the rage in America? Where is that pure and refined anger that we used to aim at those who tried to oppress us on every level? When did we become such big pussies, afraid of our own goddamned shadows? We’ve become a nation of obedient toddlers that can’t change their own diapers. The cure to this statist addiction is to quit it. There is no rehab, we must quit cold turkey or there isn’t a chance for us. We have to face the fact that there’s no better time to make this shift than now!
Often times, positivity is created by staring into the face of negativity and committing oneself towards making a change.
So the question I asked was, “Who is going to take the reigns from Dr. Paul?” Well, we are.. ALL of us!
